With A Little Help From My Friends


This is the project that I recently finished made from selvages collected from many of my quilting friends. It now hangs on a door in my sewing studio...

I had great fun working on this -- my inspiration comes from Karen Griska's Selvage Blog.

The binding was finished with the machine buttonhole stitch as I explained in this post last week.

I've named this piece "With A Little Help From My Friends" because I couldn't have made it without them...just don't tell them that Moda now sells selvages in a bag! Before you know it, my friends may decide to sell theirs on Ebay!

Anyway, a big thank you goes out from me to my very giving friends...

That is so cool! It's also a LOT of selvages! How long did it take you to finish it?

Love this project. I made a shopping bag for my sister with vertical selvedges. I might have to make a wall hanging just like yours.

Its a great project . If I would only remember to cut them off before cutting strips .... I would then have a stash of selvages. lol.
